Wednesdays workings

I finished the clasp purse for my mum in time for Mothers Day and she was actually quite surprised that I had made it.
It was a bit wonky, so I though she would have guessed it was homemade, but as she is my mother she has to love everything I make....right!!
I used a combination of lots of tutorials, but this one and this one were the ones I kept going back to.
I used a fabric I got from an IG stash clearance for the outer fabric, so I don't know what it is. It did have a Moda selvedge though! I lined it with Kona Carrot which is a really strong orange and perfect match to the small flowers. So brownie points for me from the mother as she got a CD and flowers as well!  

Today I am aiming to get this SuperSized cross stitch granny square into a cushion. I've bought the most amazingly soft Sketch flannel in Lipstick from Simply Solids for the back.
I really wanted the back to be as tactile as the front and am hoping this will do it! I am matching it with a strip of Sketch in Pool (which isn't flannel) and am planning on my using my new favourite method of a covered zip back, so fingers crossed will be finished by tonight!!

And lastly my Little Lady Siblings Together quilt blocks are all done. I now just have to decide on a layout and get them together.

I have also cast-on a Playful Stripes cardigan for Rose, but haven't gotten any photos of it yet!

So thats what I'm up to, what about you?
I'm linking up with
WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced


  1. The purse looks great, what did you do about cord in the end?

  2. Purse turned out great. Good luck with the pillow and layouting the quilt. The blocks look lovely. I'm stuck at exactly that stage with my HST quilt, too. Can we fix it? :)

  3. Gosh you have been busy Joanne, your mum is a lucky lady!

  4. Wow, you have been busy! But yes, mums have to love everything, that's the rules ;o)

  5. Everything looks beautiful! I love the orange lining in the purse.


I know time is precious, so thank you so much for taking the time to leave me a message xxx
